I have to say Oregon's Defense/OSU's Offense is the key to the game. The Buckeyes will need to sustain drives and keep their Defense off the field as much as possible. If Oregon's D can force a lot of 3 and outs, I worry that the Buckeye D will wear down. The less Mariotta is on the field, the better I like our chances.
It's obvious. I'm Every Woman!
Exactly what I was just about to say. 3 championships in the last 6 years is not what I consider underachieving. Like him or not, Saban has done a outstanding job of recruiting and then getting the results on the field.
